thank. you. the u.s. reels from killer superstorm sandy some say obama and tony are pretending that disaster relief campaigns have nothing to do with the race for the presidency. the u.k. and u.s. intelligence keep up a block of war global terrorism flying high pushing little value on the lives of both refused to follow the possible price. this international lovebox bahrain spawn all public gatherings saying it violates people's and basic freedoms the gulf motorcades tightening its grip on the opposition after almost two years of growing our greatest.
welcome to. news live from moscow my name is you. main story now obama and romney are being accused of using superstorm sandy recovery efforts to boost their bid for the presidency both officially put the campaigns on hold during because the sea turning to relieve matters instead but some say the rivalry rhetoric still shows for you guys are from the reports. this was the you tube are surprised. and i think there's. a hurricane sandy crashing on shore i've never seen anything like this i'm at a loss for words to describe what the storm could do but there's no loss for words on the campaign trail and on the eastern coast of our nation a lot of people are enduring some very difficult times the storm that wreaked havoc on america's east coast is wreaking confusion in the last critical days of a tight race for president so how do you run for office about seeming insensitive
to an ad. tragedy the candidates are certainly doing all they can to look like they aren't trying to score political points but their actions tell a different story president barack obama canceled his election rallies and returned to washington to focus on the storm the election will take care of itself next week right leaving vice president biden to campaign on his behalf. one of the perks of running for president while occupying the white house is being able to make high profile visits like this one america's whether we are standing behind you and we're going to do everything we can to help you get back on your feet it means coming across as a president on the job which certainly helps when it's a job you're reapplying for the president's been in close contact with fema. and all the agencies of course obama is the president bush's advisers say means he needs to focus on the crisis at hand in terms of how it affects the election i
don't think anybody really knows obviously we want unfettered access to the polls but it's a choice that doesn't sit well with some political opponents you'll notice he's counseling his troops over the hurricane he did not cancel his trip over benghazi. and then those republican presidential contender mitt romney so far he stops ending fund raising e-mail isn't affected states he used his campaign bus for relief efforts and put up a blog with weather related advice he's also scrap schedule campaign events only it seems there are some fine print involved this may look like romney's campaigning in ohio a key swing state but his advisors say that's not the case the so-called victory rally was canceled out of sensitivity. instead of the campaign insists this is a hurricane relief event canned goods came hand in hand with anti obama t. shirts there was music and theme songs and those attending the supposedly nonpartisan event were treated to a video about romney getting america stronger that's what american president. to do
. asked by a reporter whether this blurred the line between storm relief and politics romney's top strategist replied i agree i don't know how it happened people over politics or politics or people it's certainly difficult to tell now we may be impossible to completely stop campaigning in the middle of a closely contested race but then why make the pretense of doing so it seems that both candidates could use a little bit of this age old advice say what you mean mean what you say and do what you say you'll do. r t moscow. superstorm sandy which has left at least forty five dead also sponson i told me three nuclear power plants were forced to go through line while a state of alert was declared as a force facility. the super storm known as sandy has left millions of people and businesses along the east coast without power but the greatest danger the hurricane has posed may revolve around america's nuclear power plants at least
three nuclear reactors have been shut down and the nation's oldest facility in new jersey is on rare alert exelon corp's forty three year old oyster creek plant was put on alert after water levels at the plant rose more than six and a half feet above normal potentially affecting the water intake structure that pumps cooling water through the plant and the concern is that if the cool water is not maintained he used your radium rods in the pool could cause the water to boil experts say in an extreme scenario the rods could overheat risking the eventual release of radiation the concerns over the status of oyster creek has caused some to draw parallels to the fears surrounding last year's fukushima disaster in japan then helicopters and fire hoses were enlisted to ensure the pools remain filled with fresh water according to the nuclear regulatory commission the general electric designed nuclear reactors involved in the fukushima emergency are very
similar to twenty three of the g designed reactors in the u.s. as of tuesday afternoon the u.s. federal emergency management agency says there is no imminent threat of radiation releases from oyster creek reporting from new york marina port r.t. . stay with us here for more updates on the aftermath of superstorm sandy and the race for the white house and we've got more what's the mainstream's missing on r.t. dot com as well and next monday on the eve of the via will broadcast another live round of debate between doubt tentative third party presidential candidate. governor romney are we both agree we agree we bring the tax rates down i felt the same as the president did governor romney i'm glad. you agree let's go back to something the president i agree on and you tube you agree that the voters have a choice perhaps you want to refer to vote for when romney and obama agree on so many things remember you do have other options come november sixth tune in to see
the second round of debates between the major third party candidates right here on r.g.p. . over the years the global war on terrorism has proved a successful rallying call for u.s. and u.k. led military campaigns across the globe however as ours has pointed boyko reports the great of course sometimes goes hundred hand with a burst of time six. somali born mahdi hashi had grown up in the u.k. from the age of five he was a british citizen until this summer when the twenty three year old went missing and his family found out that the home office had stripped him of his passport for allegedly being involved in islamic extremism his parents are distraught they say that mahdi is an innocent victim of a british intelligence plot or because he refused to work for m i five. is that the he's a muslim and believe and he's a practicing muslim but being
a muslim is not being an islamist. that's what that's all why he's being victimized this is the quiet north london community center where mehdi hashi worked back in two thousand and nine it was then that he and four of his muslim colleagues say that they were approached and harassed separately by security agents it's came that m i five threatened to label them islamic extremists if they refused to become informants for british intelligence campaigners raising awareness for maddie's plight and said that the constants threats made by british intelligence made life so unbearable that he left the u.k. they were trying to offer him a job saying that you know effectively you're an extremist we know you're the only way out of this is for you to come and work for us to come and help us these will become tactics that were being used because it's all somali origin this is a purely racist profiling policy of the british government and particular security
agencies marty had been living in somalia for the past two years taking care of his grandmother and raising a son of his own but several months ago he disappeared leaving his family in despair my son is missing this summer this summer but i don't know if you know if he lived or died in the homes here that i don't. we are very wooded although. the only information the hashi family have now comes from a man who contacted them to say that he'd been in prison with maddie in djibouti and he told us that he had. d.n.a. has been taken from him and then. contacted they found out that his approach is in the conduct of the british council and the british consular see that we have order to move this decision from him and in the americans took him to. somewhere we don't know they don't know but they fear he's being held at camp in djibouti and
a tourist u.s. anti terrorist base where he may be the victim of an american rendition program in which suspects are on lawfully taken to third party states to be illegally detained and tortured the hashi family want on says to simple questions like what the allegations are against maddie where he is located and whether he's even alive but when it comes to matters of intelligence they're faced with a wall of silence lawyers acting on behalf of the hashi family have received just this response from the government it has been the policy of successive governments neither to confirm or deny speculation allegations or assertions in respect of intelligence matters this policy is maintained and accordingly the secretary of state can neither confirm nor deny the allegations made on behalf of your client these cases a classic case of profiling and you know kind of almost ludicrous policies with.
this war on terror result in an innocent individual helpless young man afraid to be having their life ruined campaigners say that by stripping maddie hashi of his passport the british government has effectively washed their hands of his case leaving his family to continue the search for answers about the now stateless son. r t london. bahrain's facing some shock to the country's authorities beyond all run is on public gatherings missing to national has called on the gulf kingdom to lift the restrictions saying they violate their rights to freedom of expression authorities in bahrain also threaten all process with a needle action saying they won't tolerate and it's arrests of national unity around will have been killed in the country which was a key u.s. ally in the region since clashes began nearly two years ago reign is under fire

a huge amounts of questions ok usually yes some foreign travel is going to be necessary but looking at the amounts that some of these committees have spent something has clearly gone wrong when you have a co trip costing eight to ten thousand pounds per member of parliament on the trip that's probably over a thousand pounds a day for the trip that kind of money would buy a normal family several holiday back in two thousand and ten the speaker for the house of commons calls for a crackdown on those types of spending since the coalition have come into power that select committee should be no more than one hundred foreign trips in the course is doubled from eight hundred thousand pounds last year up from four hundred seventy five thousand pounds the year before she said the use tax pay is pounds. prices soaring obviously that's raising a huge amount of anger amongst people who are struggling in severe economic times
